I made some today the only thing I left out was beer and I used whiting fillets. love the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also used all-purpose flour even though I had whole wheat flour and whole wheat pastry flour in my pantry. This was a great recipe. For an extra kick, I added 1 tsp. of paprika and 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper. Loved it. This is now my go-to recipe for beer battered fish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We used all purpose flour and haddock instead, because that's what we had on hand - but the batter was terrific. Great flavor, nice lite batter really enhanced the flavor of the fresh fish. Higly recommend this batter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
